What a blessing to have a local business contribute $500 recently for the Saints’ Pantry Backpack Program. Shelton School District has identified 387 students who are either homeless or extremely low income. With this contribution, 21 students will receive 60 child sized meals of nutritious non-perishable protein that tastes great and feeds the body with quality nutrients,vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber so critical for healthy body growth and brain development.
The need has never been greater with a reduction in food stamp allotments, nationwide drought & a significant decrease in food pantry donations by faithful food contributors.
Here’s how you can help. Simply donate $24 per one non-perishable protein pouch (feeds 60 child sized meals). Your $24 goes farther with the Community Challenge…as the regular price per pouch is $49. Your $24 gets matched and is shipped out on your behalf directly to the Saints’ Pantry at no cost to the food pantry and with free shipping. These bags are given to the Shelton School District Liaison to these at-risk kids.
You can put out a “Community Challenge” with your business, members, customers, church congregations and individuals. Simply take the funds you receive and order the “Community Challenge” pouches directly through Saint David’s Parrish “Giving: website. http://saintdavids.visalusgiving.com
Imagine making the difference in the lives of children in our own community.
